Patrick Cote vs. Alessio Sakara
The referee in charge of the action is Dan Miragliotta. Both fighters open orthodox. Cote swings with a right overhand and misses it. Cote lands a right hand and starts a flurry, but against the cage eats two elbows that rock him. Several more follow ups from Cote and the French Canadian is on his knees. However, in a frenzy to get the stoppage, Sakara throws multiple, clear shots to the back of the head. The referee says nothing and stops the fight.

Good call, that was sickening to watch. WTH was going on with Mirgliotta?
